@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

Painting her mountaineer suit's pattern onto the more vintage-style body was kind of a doofy move.

Surely they could've done something else. Use parts from Resolute Scarlett and ROC female figures? Or hell, even make up a costume like they did with Cobra Commander and Joe Colton?

 

Eh, if they made up a costume entirely we'd be mad because it looked nothing like the movie. And I don't think any other frankenstining would have done much good - there's the club version for that.

 

I didn't realize for quite some time they had used the Exclusive Jinx body the paint was so good. Even finally getting it in hand, I think it works remarkably well. I imagine it was a case of "figure out how to use something we already have or nothing".

 

Anyway, I may have to make a run to another Tuesday Morning to see if I can track down an extra Flint/Duke/Night Viper just for kicks.

I wouldn't. I'd be happy that the version would have some coherence instead.

 

Besides, Colton, Lady Jaye and all of Wave 1 also looked nothing like how they appeared in the movie, yet most of the complaints I've seen there were more about the hindered articulation of some of em.

We apparently got like 3 or 4 cases of the newest Retaliation Joes at TRU yesterday.  I scored 3 Night Vipers for friends.  I want to go back and get 2 Alley Vipers for myself once I get paid this week.

 

I want the Firefly w/Mini HISS, but by the time I got to Tuesday Morning, they only had 3 figures left.  :/

 

I would also like a Flint...which I realize may no longer be available anywhere.  If anyone has an extra and wants to trade for anything I can get at TRU, it would be welcome.

Picked up Yellow Jinx at my local TRU - no Blind Masters unfortunately, but no biggie.

 

Also, I can confirm that the Ultimate wave is at Tuesday Morning. Found Ultimate SE/SS and the Roadblock and Firefly w/mini HISS for five bucks each.

 

I think I can get you a Blindmaster.  Any chance you can get me that FF w/mini HISS and maybe one other figure?  I need to look up what the ones you listed look like...

 

 

BTW, I now have an extra Nightviper up for grabs. :thumbsup

If you're looking for an Ultimate Flint, I'll gladly trade one to you for the Night Viper.

He's MOC, although the card kind of curves on the upper right portion.  But if you're going to open him, there shouldn't be any issues.

I wanna get Retaliation Jinx mostly for her wicked sweet arsenal,

Just be aware that the arsenal they included wasn't the planned one and doesn't really fit in the case very well. My interest level plummeted when I found out about that. :(

I'd like to find a Night Viper.  I've seen a few Jinxes and one Blind Master (that... is a really doofy looking figure), but I think someone got there long before me otherwise.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

I've been getting super-excited for that Marauder Kickstarter.  There have been two anonymous donors that each matched $5K worth of donations, and as a result a whole slew of stretch goals have been reached.  I'm planning on getting 4 of each of the 5 figure types released thus far.

 

Oddly enough, I think I'm more excited for the blue security figure than even the black ops one.  I think those guys will be hanging out with Shockwave in the blue ROC RHINO.

 

And if things couldn't get any better, I just got an update that all donors at the Lieutenant level or above will receive 1 limited edition skull balaclava.

*squee*

 

Anyway, thanks to MrBlud for pointing this out.  Is it December, yet?

I liked Ultimate FF - mainly for the HISS Scout, but also because if you slap the Retaliation unmasked FF head on him, he looks pretty swank.

He's perfectly fine, and I won't overly mind using him as someone else.

 

But after the 3-pack Firefly that preceded it, it was, shall we say, "Furmanism to requirements".

Aye, but this is why I used my single carded Firefly for parts with some spare parts to make some Cobra Patrol-men.

Been thinking. 

 

From 2000 to 2002, we had Joe vs. Cobra and Action Force vs. Cobra-themed Micro Machines. As this early promotional image of the 2000 North American assortment shows, the vehicles were somewhat randomly selected from what Galoob had available at the time; subsequent waves were even more random in their selection. 

 

Based on what vehicles Hasbro / Galoob had back in 2004/5 when they last did the line, however, if they took a little bit of extra time they could no doubt put together an assortment using vehicles that at least paralleled what we had in the actual Joe line. 

 

If they were to do that, would anyone go for it? If nothing else, there appears to be a small but firm market for micro-scale vehicles again, what with the Trash Pack stuff and a few other brands around.

Hey! A half decent idea :p

 

I'm all for more micro-lines.  As is, it continues to surprise me that Hasbro has continued to let Micro Machines wither in its vault.  As a kid, stuff like like Dino-Riders and Micro Machines were HUGE to me, and it saddens me to see such novel ideas languish in the past.  If nothing else, I'd be interested to see Hasbro revisit the Micro Machines with a broader range of brands (considering what Hasbro has access to as far as brands go).

 

All things considered, I still think the only way for GI Joe to maintain the vehicle focus collectors want so badly would be to transition to a minifigure format (but WAY better executed than what Sigma Six did)
